This dress comes from a desire to sew silk, a difficult and misleading material butwith undeniable qualities: summer or winter, a silk dress gives a certain alure.
I wanted a dress inspired from Roaring Twenties, fluid and not over-dressed. The only precious detail is the wave-shaped bottom border of lace.
It’s a dress that is definitely too wide for me, I could weigh 100 pounds and I could still wear it. Somewhere in my calculations I added too many inches. But with a sweater and a belt on top of it, I could hide the extra width.
I wanted to show it because even an error could be interesting. I think I was too confident and enthusiastic (I spent a lot of time choosing the silk and the lace) but did not have enough time to make it. Finally do not aim a too ambitious outcome, but move slowly.
I’m glad to be back on the blog. After a few months absence, I finally found the time to take pictures and write. That is generally the kind of post stirring less interest than a pattern-making tutorial, but it’s the only one I had the energy to write.
And you, would you like to read mathematical formulas or rather see pictures?
